Description

This two-year Erasmus Mundus Master's programme in International Migration and Social Cohesion (MISOCO) offers students the opportunity to study international migration in three European countries.

MISOCO seeks to explore the critical elements of international migration and the incorporation of immigrants in the society of destination. Its aim is to educate students in advanced theories, techniques, and methodologies in the field of migration studies. MISOCO brings together those who have an interest in creating a shared outlook for Europe in terms of migration studies. Students will study in three European countries. The first year is undertaken at two core institutes: the University of Amsterdam (1st semester) and the University of Deusto (2nd semester), both offering consolidated expertise in theoretical and methodological approaches to migration studies. The second year is used for specialisation at one of the other European institutes. The University College Dublin, University of Latvia or, University of Osnabrück will provide students with focused teaching and research in their specialised areas under the supervision of leading experts. The programme also offers some additional possibilities for mobility to Moldava State University (Moldova), York University (Canada) and University Antonio Ruiz de Montoya (Peru).
